Some of the metals in their pure form are softer by nature. They are to be made stronger by adding suitable elements like sliver and copper to gold
When it comes to Cast Iron this metal is hard. By adding carbon, nickle ,silver etc the Iron can be made malleable. The Metallurgy will be the subject to deal with this.
